Hello, everyone. This first hour will me my (sorely lacking) impression of what FXO taught me and anyone who calls herself or himself a freeform DJ.

Thanks so much Gaylord

And be forewarned I am in less than no mood for clownishness (unless it refers to X. Ray Burns, of course).
  Sun. 5/5/19 8:17pm Listener Robert:

I started listening to FXO in 1980, about tied with Pat Duncan for first WFMU show I listened to.
  Sun. 5/5/19 8:18pm Listener Robert:

It's OK, Gaylord, I'm usually the clownish one, and I'm not in the mood for it either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/19 8:19pm Gaylord Fields:

@Listener Robert: I do appreciate that, truly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/19 8:21pm jkeigh:

I'm late to the WFMU family so I've only had the honor of listening to a few of FXO's shows (including his last show which was not too long ago). What little I've heard makes me feel like I've missed out on a lot. I wish I could freeze time and go back to all of the archives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/19 8:24pm Gaylord Fields:

@jkeigh: That's such a thoughtful sentiment to share with us. Thank you.
  Sun. 5/5/19 8:26pm Booz:

This set gets late FXO to a T. (90s to 00s, which is when I listened most often) Learned a lot from that curmudgeonly polymath.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/19 8:28pm Gaylord Fields:

@Booz: My idea was to re-create his style without copying an actual set. Essentially, it's the pupil demonstrating what he learned from the master.

“If you like-a me and I like-a you
And we like-a both the same
I'd like to say, this very day
I'd like to change your name.
If you love-a me like I love-a you
Then happy we both will be...”
  Sun. 5/5/19 8:34pm phat:

I've been listening to WFMU since 2000 or so and that really seems like a long time. FXO was definitely an important part of my experience.

I just turned on to Miles, and it's about perfect. thank you

My condolences
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/19 8:34pm Gaylord Fields:

@Susan C.: I was debating which of FXO's opening themes to play, and I came very close to airing that one. I'm happy that you recalled it here for us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/19 8:34pm Gaylord Fields:

@phat: We welcome that.

Though rarely at a loss for words (for better or worse,) I really feel like posting something about what Frank O’Toole the broadcast personality gave to me, a listener. But I’m kind of choking up. So that’s what I’ll post.
  Sun. 5/5/19 8:46pm Whooda:

logged into the internets to see the playlist "Dear Prudence" couldn't have been more grateful DJ Gaylord Fields.

@Whooda: Gratitude is the theme here, in honor of our fallen freeform brother Frank O'Toole.

What was Mr Lennon getting on about just then? Have to buy the deluxe set to find out.

@Manana: He had (mostly unjustified) beef with the Maharishi, and buys his ink by the barrel, as the saying goes.

This is great
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/19 8:52pm Gaylord Fields:

It's recent, so I'm unaware if FXO ever heard it, but it's totally in his wheelhouse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/19 8:53pm Fuzzy:

"Sexy Sadie" was originally written as "Maharishi."
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/19 8:54pm Manana:

Gaylord! You researched that jazz! Thanks for info. Figures crabby John was just being crabby. I liked that version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/19 8:54pm Gaylord Fields:

@Fuzzy: The rest of the band talked John out of a libel suit.

That was an enlightened move!

Umm... not a for-real recording? Chilling either way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/19 8:58pm Gaylord Fields:

@Manana: This is a Steinski mix, so it is his creation.
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/19 9:00pm Manana:

It is pretty good faux.

FXO knew his stuff... I went through all his archives when they were still there in real audio... still have a bunch of his music... God rest his soul..!..:)0(:
